Introduction and Features

The Kingwin LZP-550 PSU is one of the first 80PLUS Platinum certified power supplies to hit the market. And high efficiency isn't the LZP-550's only claim to fame. Check out our review to see why it earned an Editor's Choice award.Introduction

Kingwin has just released their first Lazer Platinum Series power supply, the LZP-550, which is one of the first 80PLUS Platinum certified PC power supplies on the market.  The LZP-550 PSU is rated for 550W output and can be easily overclocked to 650W output with only a slight drop in efficiency.  Kingwin's new power supply comes with a full compliment of fixed and modular cables, a quiet 140mm fan that doesn't even turn on until the load heats up, and includes universal AC input with Active PFC.  It is designed to support the latest Intel and AMD processors along with multiple high-end graphic adapters.  And last but not least, Kingwin has extended their traditional 3-year warranty to five years; now we're talking.

Just a brief time ago asking if Corsair made power supplies would only get you an odd look in return, but over the past few years they have become quite well known for several lines of quality PSUs.  The newest is Version 2 of their TX750, a PSU that has been around for about 3 years and is in need of updating. [H]ard|OCP was glad to see that this PSU was an improvement from the previous iteration and it handily took a Silver Award from them after passing testing with flying colours.


"Corsair is clearly defining the market for its new "Enthusiast Series" 750 watt power supply. Now that we know who it is for, surely we know what to expect from it right? Corsair has climbed to the top with a few other brands in a short period of time, let's see if "enthusiast" means the same thing to Corsair as it does to us."

Drop buy TechPowerUp for a dissection of a common PSU for PCs.  The sticker on the side of mosty PSUs warns about opening the casing as there are no "user serviceable parts" inside.  We all know that to be a lie, as long as you let the capacitors bleed out their charge before touching them with anything metal.
